Meghan McCain's Writing Life Moving from Blog to Book

Meghan McCain, the 23-year-old daughter of presidential candidate John McCain, isn't limiting her writing career to her blog. The creator of McCain Blogette, an irreverent look at her life on the campaign trail, has said that she is going to write an illustrated children's book about her father. set to be published during the first week of September — just when the Republican Party is holding its national convention in Minneapolis.

Meghan McCain, the daughter of the presumptive Republican nominee and his second wife Cindy, is not your typical candidate's daughter, as you can tell from an article in GQ. Though the Columbia University graduate agrees with her father on many issues, she's a socially liberal young woman who voted for John Kerry in the 2004 election, thinks Barack Obama is "sexy,' and is a fan of burlesque stripper (and former Marilyn Manson wife) Dita von Teese.

With Meghan McCain blogging the general election campaign for the Republican side and Obama and his young supporters representing the Democratic side, there's going to be quite a lot of youthful energy in this battle for the White House.
